UFC Signs Charles Rosa To Fight Against Dennis Silver At UFC Fight Night 53

The UFC’s return to Sweden has had another last minute change. According to sources unbeaten featherweight Charles Rosa has been signed to the UFC to face off against Dennis Siver at UFC Fight Night 53.

Just days ago it was announced that France’s Taylor Lapilus would replace Robert Whiteford against Siver, but it seems now that the Swedish MMA Federation wouldn’t let that fight happen. SMAFF President had this to say on the fight:

“The SMMAF has previously approved the match-up between Dennis Siver and Robert Whiteford for an event in Stockholm on Oct. 4 to be hosted by the American promoter UFC. Since then Mr. Siver’s opponent has withdrawn due to injury. On Sept. 24, the SMMAF received a formal request for a change of match for Mr. Siver and the request has not yet been processed. Reports in the media saying that the match is already approved is incorrect.”

UFC Fight Night 53 takes place Saturday, Oct. 4 from the Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden. The entire fight card will stream live on the UFC’s digital network, UFC Fight Pass.
